The cell wall protects the plant cell, maintains its shape, and prevents excessive uptake of water

Plant cell walls are made of cellulose fibers embedded in other polysaccharides and protein

Slide 97

Plant cell walls may have multiple layers:

Plant cell walls may have multiple layers:

Primary cell wall: relatively thin and flexible

Middle lamella: thin layer between primary walls of adjacent cells

Secondary cell wall (in some cells): added between the plasma membrane and the primary cell wall

Plasmodesmata are channels between adjacent plant cells

The Extracellular Matrix (ECM) of Animal Cells

The Extracellular Matrix (ECM) of Animal Cells

Animal cells lack cell walls but are covered by an elaborate extracellular matrix (ECM)

The ECM is made up of glycoproteins such as collagen, proteoglycans, and fibronectin

ECM proteins bind to receptor proteins in the plasma membrane called integrins

Intercellular Junctions

Intercellular Junctions

Neighboring cells in tissues, organs, or organ systems often adhere, interact, and communicate through direct physical contact

Intercellular junctions facilitate this contact

There are several types of intercellular junctions
